Edible and Medicinal Plants: Field Trip Guide

Though it's designed to guide a field trip to the New York Botanical Garden, you could take resource like this one to a local park, wilderness area, school garden, or even a weedy empty lot. Middle schoolers identify plant parts and connect food and medicine to plants in their surroundings. You'll find lots of room for extension and enrichment, but the idea is a good one.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
